Helen works closely with our Managing Trustee, Parishna to raise the funds needed, to keep our practitioners safely in the field and that they have the necessary vehicles to reach their clients and appropriate assistive devices for our clients.
Helen had a very successful musical career playing in orchestras both here and abroad. On her return from a spell working in Finland, she felt that she wanted to give more than just music to people. She wanted to help people with little opportunity to find a musical future. And she did. She founded a Music Academy in an unserved rural part of the Eastern Cape.
It is there that she discovered her fundraising skills. In the process she has found a passion for the work we do and the change it brings to the lives of blind people living on the margin.
